The episode: “Angels Revenge,” ep. 622
The riff: Said with great trepidation and concern by Mike as a group of foxy secret agent women apply lipstick and prepare for battle.
The explanation: “Johnny Wadd” was a prolific and popular pornographic actor of the 1970s, real name John Curtis Holmes. Estimates say he appeared in more than 2,000 films or scenes. He was noted for the size of his unit and called “The Sultan of Smut,” apparently. Johnny Wadd was the name of his best-known character, a private eye in a series of Phillip Marlowe-style porn movies. He faced legal jeopardy in the drug-related Wonderland Murders of 1981 and may have killed some people. He died of AIDS-related illness in 1988.
Novelty factor: I’ve never heard of the guy, but from the name “Johnny Wadd,” I’m not surprised this is a porn actor we’re talking about.
